Chloe Moretz May Find Herself in 'The Rut' with Karyn Kusama
Some might say that writer and director Karyn Kusama is already in a rut after the somewhat lackluster performance of Jennifer's Body (sure Aeon Flux doesn't help either), but 24 Frames reports she's moving onto another project aptly titled The Rut. However, the project is quite the departure from her previous tongue-in-cheek horror venture as the story is supposed to follow a father-daughter relationship where the daughter is forced to learn the tricks of hunting and archery taught to her by her dad after he goes missing. In addition, Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In) is in talks to take on the role of the daughter.
If you're keeping count, this is the second project in 24 hours with links to Chloe Moretz as a daughter of an off-kilter father-daughter relationship. Like I said, every adolescent female role under the sun is being sent her way, so her Mom is probably very busy reading scripts (Moretz said her mother reads scripts before she even gets a chance to read them). Kusama enjoyed a decent jump from indie filmmaking with Girlfight to more mainstream films (even if they weren't the most successful), but maybe this will get her back on track after coming up short recently. And if Moretz does end up being involved, then my interest will definitely increase, as I love seeing her in just about anything. We'll keep you updated! What do you guys think?
